Relief Society Meeting

So today was my first meeting with the relief society president for my calling as the compassionate service leader. There’s so much I want to do but I have no idea where to start! I need some ideas, too! I want to get the girls more involved to meet each other, because honestly I don’t even know all the girls and I’ve been in the ward since December of ’07.

Obviously they’ve got the birthday thing and they’d like me to do something for the girls who had a birthday already and what not. I think I’d have to start from May to get the girls from this term’s birthdays.

Then there’s the check and find out who is who and where they live and if they need anything. I’m just going to have to go door to door this week end and find everyone. At least I know our ward is pretty much in building 1 and half of building 2. I was worried I’d have to run all over the complex (I believe there are like 14 buildings or something like that)…

I have to admit while sitting at the table discussing all of this I was shocked to feel like my mission had prepared me for this calling. I’d done this kind of stuff before as a missionary. Granted I had a companion to help me, but now I have a comity to help me. It’s pretty cool how Heavenly Father gives us experiences throughout our lives to prepare us for ones to come.

Last nights birthday party for Emily was a huge hit! We had a few people show up and then Ryan decided since he was the only guy he’d yell out to all the people in the court yard from our balcony and see who’d come. Well the whole ward showed up! HAHA!! I met some really great people. Even was asked about my room mate who has pretty much dated everyone in the ward. :P Please, brothers, I don’t want to be the one spreading gossip. But the one guy who asked me seemed to be a little bitter about it. It’s almost turned into a ward joke. Sad…

Anyway, after everyone left 3 guys stayed behind to play a game of Cranium, my favorite game! We were teamed up one guy and one girl per team. The game ended and I believe Emily and Rob won. Either way it was still fun! :D I’d like to have another game night soon.

So, here I am… Compassionate Service Leader for the Relief Society. On the 23rd I meet with my bishop to get a calling as an ordinance worker at the temple. I work Monday – Friday 8:30am – 4:30pm as a graphic designer…I seem to like staying busy. There’s so much I want to do! *sigh*
